Here's a sci-fi romance double feature for you: DEEP DECEPTION by Cathy Pegau and NEVER GONNA DESERT YOU by Jessica E. Subject.
I was drawn to NEVER GONNA DESERT YOU because it's f/f. Lesbian SFR is still extremely rare so it tends to appear as a prominent blip on my radar.
This title is #2 in the author's The Underground series. It's probably best to read the stories in order. I forgot to check that detail going in (darn it!) and I'm guessing the setting was established in more detail in NEVER GONNA LET YOU GO. Anyway, I was keen to read another f/f sci-fi romance. Even more interesting was one part of the blurb, which I bolded:
Upon noticing the "deception" angle, the plot thickened for me because Cathy Pegau's DEEP DECEPTION, also f/f SFR, was already on my TBR pile. Did you notice the word "deception" is in the title? And guess what word shows up in the blurb?Determined to find and bring back her girlfriend, Brook enlists in the next mission to the foreign planet, Airondelle. But the deception at Planet Core continues, and Brook doesn't realize the depth of her father's involvement until he orders her terminated. Struggling to stay alive, she quickly learns nothing is as she believed.
Will she ever find Melina? Or will Brook be stuck light years from home, alone, and with a fierce predator hunting her down?
